Dr Simon Bariol


Dr Simon Bariol is a urological surgeon with a particular interest in endourology, a urological subspecialty which encompasses the minimally invasive management of urinary tract stones, obstruction and cancer. His expertise in this area allows patients with prostate disease, kidney and ureteric stones, tumors of the kidney or ureter, or narrowing of the ureter to be treated without the need for an incision using laser techniques. Larger renal tumours are treated using laparoscopic (keyhole) surgical techniques, providing less postoperative pain and allowing a more rapid convalescence than conventional open surgery.

Dr Bariol undertook urology training in New South Wales at Gosford, St George and Westmead Hospitals before obtaining his Endourology fellowship at the prestigious Scottish Lithotriptor Centre in Edinburgh in 2004. Here he received extensive training in the use of laser for treatment of urinary stones and prostate disease, as well as ablative and reconstructive laparoscopic surgery. He has a number of local and international publications concerning urolithiasis, urinary stents and urothelial cancer.

He is appointed as a Visiting Medical Officer at Westmead and Blacktown Hospitals, Westmead Private and Norwest Private Hospital. He is a senior lecturer at the University of Sydney and supervises urology training at Westmead and Blacktown Hospitals.


Dr Simon Bariol is a urological surgeon with a particular interest in endourology.
